Most everyone gets away with it since the router shows up as one device to the modem.

I don't know if they offer bulk packages to apartment owners at all... everyone I know with an apartment gets service directly through Comcast, not their landlord.
That is pretty much what I thought. I knew it had to break some ToS rules or something. No way they are knowingly letting people profit from them while they are also losing customers in the deal. Like I said above though, people can and probably will do it in smaller complexes were they could probably get by with it, at least for a while.

The bandwidth does cost money though. They need to pay bandwidth providers for you to actually get 1Gbps access. If it cost $100, you'd get 1Gbps *sometimes*.

Btw, if you bundle 1Gbps with basic phone, the price drops from $350 to $317/mo. Adding a service and saving $33? I'm in!
